Synopsis for "Menace from the Past"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Jungle Action #6.

Lo-Zar spots a group of natives fleeing from something his friend Papai calls a "menace from the past", and goes to investigate. He comes across a tribe of Egyptians who fled their country centuries ago to live in the jungle. Their wiseman spots Lo-Zar and claims that he is the "Monarch of Evil" and orders his minions to attack. Lo-Zar puts up a fight but is easily captured and soon learns that this group fears the so-called Monarch of Evil, whose visage in effigies resemble Lo-Zar. According to their legends this group fears that the Monarch will slay their ruler Princess Keah.

Unwilling to harm the girl, Lo-Zar agrees to go with them and is chained despite his warnings that the chains will not work. As they head to a nearby cliff, Lo-Zar spots snake in a tree about to strike the princess and breaks free from his bonds and saves her life. Agreeing to go with them, Lo-Zar then saves the princess from a zebra stampede and later when she purposely jumps off the cliff meant for Lo-Zar, the jungle hero swings on a vine and saves her. Keah then reveals that she intended to kill herself so that Lo-Zar would not be put to death for her. However, realizing that their legends are false in light of the fact that Lo-Zar saved the princess three times, the wise man of the group proclaims that Lo-Zar is not the "Monarch of Evil" and orders the effigy smashed. Lo-Zar then bids farewell to the Egyptians and returns to the jungle.

In the jungle the animals have become restless, this mood comes to the attention of Lorna the Jungle Girl although she does not know what the cause is. Searching the jungle she spots a helicopter swooping down on a herd of Gazelles and snares one in it's net. Lorna tries to stop the helicopter but fails when the chopper takes off. Suddenly a rhino charges as her, but Lorna is able to evade it's charge and stuns the creature before it can harm her. Just then Greg Knight and a group of natives arrive at the scene. Aware of the danger, Greg once more tells Lorna that the jungle is no place for her and tells her to seek safety someplace else. Lorna leaves his presence but is determine to stay.

Swinging through the jungle, Lorna spots the helicopter flying over again. Climbing a tall tree, Lorna is able to jump at the aircraft and grab hold of it's landing wheels. The helicopter passes over Greg Knight and his party, and he spots Lorna on the wheel and he decides to follow after it. However before the chopper lands at it's camp, the pilots notice Lorna holding on and hover over a crocodile infested lake and begins trying to land there. Seeing no way out of the danger, Lorna jumps off instead and lands on one of the crocs and forces it to swim her to shore.

The chopper lands and the pilots, two animal hunters named Aggie and Joe, come at Lorna with a gun. Joe explains that they have been hired to capture animals that are to be used in experiments. While this is being discussed, Aggie tosses away her cigarette starting a wild fire in the dry conditions. As the flames begin to rage, Lorna makes a run to the caged animals and sets them free. Aggie and Joe try to get clear of the flames. Joe stumbles into the lake and is eaten alive by the crocs in the water. Aggie is then confronted by the animals that Lorna set free and the maul her to death.

Soon a rain begins to fall, putting out the fire and in the aftermath of the carnage, Greg Knight arrives with his party. He once more berates Lorna for being in the jungle as it's a man's domain and she jokingly asks if she can stay by him, which he angrily refuses.

Synopsis for "With Fang and Talon!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Jann of the Jungle #9.

When a local tribe begins to worship the long abandoned god known as the "Beast of Fang and Talon", Pat Mahoney goes to take a picture of the massive idol of the beast with Jann in tow. Jann warns Pat that the local tribe will not like him taking photos of their effigy, when suddenly they are surrounded by the tribe. When Jann asks them why they started to worship the idol again after abandoning it years ago, the tribal leader tells her that their tribe has entered a period of poverty and begin making food offerings to the idol which have been taken, a sign to them that their god is back and that good tidings will come. After this is explained to them, Pat and Jann are allowed to leave.

Finding it all suspicious, Jann decides to investigate further and returns to the idol later that night. Climbing into the idols mouth Jann is surprised to find two white men inside as well as a vulture and a leopard that live within the idol. The men toss Jann into the pit where the leopard lives and Jann easily knocks the creature out with a nerve pinch. However she is too slow to stop the men from pulling a gun on her. She soon learns that they are radium miners who find a rich vein under the tribal village and have been using the idol as cover, but to trick the natives into providing them food as well.

Jann fights the men off and then using the vulture, pulls herself and the men out of the idol and out into the jungle. Having soundly defeated the miners, she convinces them to share the wealth of the mine with the local tribe so that they can purchase the food that they desperately need.
